The move to WWE might not happen right away because of a legal threat sent to them from ROH months ago regarding tampering. In wrestling, it’s not uncommon for a promotion to reach out to a wrestler before they become a free agent but ROH wanted to enforce their legal rights so WWE is being cautious. That means that there is a waiting period but they did make exceptions for The Hardys and Drew McIntyre. However, in the case of Crazzy Steve, they are holding off before getting him signed so I guess they are handling signings on a case by case basis.
Cole finished up with ROH at their show in Hopkins, MN on Saturday night. He lost to Matt Taven.
